Asus P4S8X-X - Pentium 4 - 2.4 GHz

My Asus P4S8X-X mobo has acted strangely. The Computer worked fine but now I have to wait one hour or more, waiting for some screen image. After the system wakes up, it works for a while normally but turns off again. No beep, no screen, no error. I do not have other mobo or processor to replace.I've already released all boards, the memories, video, battery etc. but nothing could solve the problem and already update the bios also, but again unsucessfully.Any idea, please help.

The Asus Asus Motherboards P4S8X-MX uses PC-3200 type memory and usually ships from Asus with 0MB of RAM. The Asus Motherboards P4S8X-MX supports up to 2GB of RAM. Maximizing your system memory will allow your Asus Motherboards to operate as fast as possible and offer the most productive environment.
RAM modules must be installed in special locations on the motherboard called Sockets. These memory sockets are what hold the RAM module in place and can range from 1 to 16 or more. Banks consist of a group of 1 or more sockets. A system can have 1 or more of these banks of sockets. If a system has more than 1 socket in a bank, a Kit must be purchased for that bank. A kit is simply more than one, usually 2 or 4, like RAM modules. All sockets in a bank must be filled, and for such systems we sell memory in a kit. Typically you will see 2x512MB or 2x256MB signifying you are purchasing 2 units of 512MB RAM modules or 2 units of 256MB RAM modules, respectively.
The Asus Asus Motherboards P4S8X-MX has 1 bank(s) which have 2 socket(s) in each bank for a total of 2 memory socket(s). This means the Asus Motherboards P4S8X-MX can support up to 2 individual RAM modules.
We recommend you purchase the largest capacity RAM module each time you purchase memory. The reason for this is if you decide to upgrade again later and all your memory sockets are filled, you will not need to discard the already installed lower capacity memory.
Below is a visual representation of the memory bank(s) and socket(s) configuration for the Asus Asus Motherboards P4S8X-MX.

Cpu speed for ddr 400 ram

cpu speed has nothing to do with ram. they are completely independant. ram speed is important to the FSB (front serial bus) this is the speed at which your motherboard communicates with the devives attached to it. cpu speed refers to how fast a cpu can process info. or how fast it "thinks". most motherboards have the capability of upgrading cpu's. your mobo (motherboard will support the following cpu's:
any pentium 4 up to 3.0 ghz
it supports the following ram
ddr (nott ddr 2 or 3) up to 2 gigs (1 gig each slot) of 533mhz speed (or less)
it also supports up to 2 gigs of sdram either pc133 or pc100
you are using 400 speed ram as you stated i would upgrade to a 533 speed ram as it will be faster, but this is not necessary. as for the cpu just get any P4 (pentium 4) that is 3.0 ghz or less and it will work.

What mobo can replace ASUS P5PE-VM

the socket of you processor is lga775, the graphics port is agp and it support DDR I , so you need to buy a motherboard that has the exact specifications.
my advice is to continue with asus. you could buy an Asus P5P800/ P5S800 that is compatible with your previous motherboard. there are also some good models from asrock and they may be cheaper than asus.
the problem with this type of motherboard is that they are expensive because that are not in use.

I added a Pentium P4 2.66Ghz cpu 533FSB, Bios appears and says the due to new cpu installed system has started at 64Mhz please select correct Frequency. I select 2667 Ghz and 133Mhz saved and restarted....

Turn the computer off.
Turn the computer on.
Wait a minute or two -- it may "time-out" and reset it to the "slowest" speed.

If that fails, look closely at the motherboard,
or read the manual for the motherboard, to find a "clear BIOS" jumper.
Turn the computer off. Move the jumper from "1-2" to "2-3".
Wait a few seconds. Move the jumper back to "1-2".
Turn the computer on, with the "default" settings.

Upgrading a processor....

Compatibility: make sure that your motherboard supports the new CPU you have bought. If you are sure it supports it then make sure you have the latest BIOS or any firmware from manufacturer installed.
I am assuming that you have seated the processor properly and it also has a fan properly working over it.
Hope that helped!
